    To date I’ve recorded 6536.9km during the last4/5years on your Silverback MTB and it’s still going strong, the bike was frequently services and to date never gave me any mechanical break downs, it’s still a great bike to own and its climbing abilities always looks impressive.

  2. Chriszelle Nagel

    I bought my green monster in January this year and I already have more than 1800km on it. My personality is very floral and girly in the sense of style and I was sceptical to buy such a manly coloured first MTB. For some reason, the colour scheme only enhanced all its great features on the trails. I feel fast and safe while riding. And I am super comfortable. It makes every ride a great experience.

  3. Drikus

    I ride a Silverback Sola that I bought about a year ago. I enjoy the bike very much. It has made me laugh, and it has made me cry. But it mas never let me down. It’s very comfortable. It climbs easily, is stable on the downhills amd fast on the straights. Thanks for building a great bike!

  4. Nico Louw

    I bought a silverback vida 1 in 2013. I did about 40000 hard km on it and it developed a very small hairline crack.
    Silverback replaced the frame with a new vida 1 frame. I was very surprised that they did it after 4 years and a lot of kilometers.

    I will recomend silverback bikes to everyone and my next bike will be a carbon hardtail from silverback.

  5. Philip Parrock

    In July of this year I purchased a Sola 1, I tip the scales at around 120kg and I am very concerned about parts failing and braking. The Sola 1 has been immense and has not let me down in the slightest.
    I am looking forward to many many more kilometres on it.
    Thank you for building a strong, dependable bike that is excellently spec’d and a true pleasure to ride, even with only the Factory fitted parts.
    I am very impressed!

    I’ve had my sola 1 frame for a bit more than a year now and I’ve never been happier with a bike. The geometry is just right to get you to the top of the hill and shred down some xco downhill. To this date i have had no problems with frame what so ever.

  7. Jaco Le Roux

    Good bikes through all the different ranges and spec levels at decent prices
